Omega-licious Granola

This yummy mix of goodness is loaded with omega-rich ingredients! I also like to call this my “low-‘nola” because it’s low on the sugar side. Instead of using regular oil or butter, I’ve chosen to use coconut oil instead. After a few trials, I’ve come to realize the coconut oil actually makes it more crunchy and delicious! I love add this granola to a bowl of kefir, greek yogurt, fruit or ice cream! I even add it to trail mix sometimes.

Directions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Combine all dry fixings into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Melt some coconut oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Measure out 1/2 cup from the pot. If there is left over melted oil, just dump it back into the oil jar.

  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread out the granola
  6. Pop the tray into the oven and bake for 25 minutes
  7. About half way through cooking, give the granola a little stir and move it around a bit.
  8. Allow the granola to cool completely once done before moving it to an air-tight container.
  9. Feel free to add in additional fixings such as Raisins or Dried Cranberries (but only when it’s cooled).
